Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight has been a bit of a runaway success for developer Yacht Club Games. The digital release has shifted over 700,000 copies, and that's allowed the studio to launch the retro platformer in a physical form on PlayStation 4.

The boxed version of the game will include a full game manual - we know, you don't see those every day - and it'll come with all of the title's additional content that's already been released, as well as the game's first add-on, Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows.

You'll be able to pick up the retail version on the 13th October in North America, and the 16th October in Europe. It'll be priced at $19.99. We can hear some of you digging up your precious gems as we type this.
